Glee is airing its final episode tonight and I think this show deserves a little reflection. I’ve been very open about my disappointed in Glee (Exhibit A) and the free fall of its ratings prove that something went wrong with this show. But it needs to be said that this show is a success based on the fact that it has lasted 6 seasons and that it even aired to begin with. Who would have thought, a show where a bunch of high schoolers burst into song and get slushied in the face would work? I would have never guessed that and I wouldn’t have put my money on Glee lasting even two seasons. But here we are 6 seasons in and that is pretty incredible. [Read more...]
Glee seems like it is back to its old goodness again. These first few episodes have felt like we have the old Glee back. This episode took on Carole King and Alanis Morissette. The mash-ups were pretty great and while I felt that eventually they all started to sound to the same, Glee made it seem like King and Morissette should have always been mashed up. The only thing I wished we had gotten this episode was more information about and getting to know the new kids more. Hopefully, that will happen in the episodes to come. Anyways, let’s dig in!

Glee is back for it’s final season. And although I’ve been very open about my dislike and criticism of Glee over the last two seasons, I didn’t hate this episode. Now, was it the best? No. Was it the worst? Not by a long shot. Let’s get to this recap shall we.
Apparently, Rachel’s television show (titled: That’s So Rachel) was a huge failure. It was a live scripted show which sounds ridiculous then we got to see some of the pilot later in the episode it was confirmed that it was ridiculous. But it seemed like a much bigger failure on the studio and writer’s part then on Rachel’s but she took a huge hit as well. Rachel goes into hiding and when she comes out, she finds out her parents are getting a divorce and selling her childhood home. [Read more...]
With the news that GLEE is only getting 13 episodes for its last season, I started thinking about what the hell happened to this show? GLEE exploded onto the scene when it premiered in 2009. Many people wrote it off and thought a show where the characters burst into song just wouldn’t work on network television but GLEE defied the odds and had a pretty great first season and then an ok second and third season and then a not so good fourth season and finally a dreadful fifth season. So I know you’ve asked yourself, how did that fall happen? Well, you can sleep well again TVAddicts because I’m about to deconstruct the destruction of GLEE.
This deconstruction begins and ends with season 4 because that is the season the show really started to fail at pretty much everything (season 5 is so horrible that it gets no attention nor deserves any attention here). Many shows have failed at the point where its characters transitioned from high school to college and GLEE was obviously no different. Although, the beginning of season 4 started with a glimmer of hope because the premiere episode switched seamless between the two settings of McKinley and New York but that glimmer only continued for this one episode. Ultimately, the addition of too many new characters and the retention of almost all the old characters were too much for the writers to handle. [Read more...]
